Jennifer Walshe’s Nature Data: Realization, Embodiment, and the New Discipline

I performed Jennifer Walshe’s album Nature Data (2010) as an evening length concert for solo vocal performer. The four pieces engage heavily with a New Discipline process of making music. The performance included vocal improvisation with animal sounds, a shadow performance with full staging and vocal and violin improvisation, a spaghetti western drone piece with electronics and psaltery, and a high-speed pop song vocal medley. Performing this music involved heavy score reconstruction and research into Walshe’s performance practice.
